We made it! We have officially launched our marketplace for personal data! Now you can sell your data for the first time and participate in the personal data economy by sharing your data profile with interested companies and institutions securely on the BitsaboutMe Personal Data Marketplace (PDM).
As a user you can decide which of your profile data you want to share for the right reward. For example, you can share demographic information and information about interests and hobbies, but not your address. As a BitsaboutMe user, you can decide yourself whom you grant access to your data and for what purposes.
Trade your data self-determined and transparently
Based on your sharing preferences, you will receive offers for data deals from companies and other institutions. We will start slowly with a small number of deals and then add more when we gained some experience. If you accept a deal, the company that wants to use your data can access it in a controlled environment – and rewards you in return.
But not only you as a BitsaboutMe user gets rewarded: companies and institutions also benefit from the access to high-quality, comprehensive and up-to-date data profiles and can thus gain a sustainable competitive advantage. A real win-win situation!
Get paid in one click
According to the survey we conducted this summer, about 80% of the users surveyed expect money for their personal data. Therefore, we provide on our platform a chash pay-out option from day one. This allows you – with just one click – to transfer your earnings directly to your bank account.
Good to know: the participation on the marketplace is not required! You can decide at any time whether you want to activate the marketplace or simply continue using the Personal Data Store (PDS). For us, you as a user and your data sovereignty always comes first.
What are you waiting for? Check the offers on the marketplace and strike your first deal in the upcoming personal data economy with BitsaboutMe!
